• Petaluma City Schools offers music to all TK through 6th grade students.  Our youngest learners work on fun songs, movements and simple instruments.  As they move through the grades, students learn to read simple music notes, experience more complex rhythms and songs and even design their own choreography!  In 4th grade, all students learn to play the recorder.  And in 5th & 6th grades, students chose chorus or band for the whole year.  Band students play the clarinet, flute, trombone or trumpet with some percussion for those interested.
